Supernatural Crime

Trolling the web comics lists yesterday, I stumbled upon this gem: Supernatural Crime. The site borrows heavily from the crime pulps of the 1930s and the 1940s. Pretty fun reading.

I like the overall theme and coherence of the site. Creator Christopher Mills has built a dark but colorful alternate universe of shadowy figures, masked vigilantes, and mad scientists. The strips themselves occupy just the right amount of screen real estate and are a joy to read.

If I were to do a web comic, I would do it just like this.

An added bonus is that one of my favorite artists from way back, Joe Staton, does a lot of the strips.

And yeah, it's free, too. Check it out. Ditto for Mills' home site, Atomic Pulp, which leads to other fine works.

  1. I used to think I was clever for coming up with an idea for a film noir Ghostbusters-ish comic until I saw that site, and the comic "The Goon." :(
